closing hours. >> from record-breaking heat to snow in the hills, it will be an interesting week. we'll talk about it coming up. >> nothing like that on the roads. everything is status quo. we have morning roadwork that could slow you down. more coming up. good morning, it's monday, november 5. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everybody. i'm frank mallicoat. it's 5:00. we begin this hour with breaking news from the east bay. an officer-involved shooting under investigation in fremont this morning. the investigation has central avenue closed near glen more this morning. a naked man armed with a knife refused to stop chasing his wife so the police shot and killed him. both officers are on paid leave. and new morning, a fire tears through a nail salon in pleasant hill. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran is at the scene and tells us why investigators believe that this fire is suspicious. good morning, cate. reporter: it's what they found when they first got here
5:01 am
that tipped them off. investigators are actually still here on the scene of the fire. contra costa fire investigator says he is right now sifting through the rubble looking for more evidence. but when firefighters first got here they found a molotov cocktail or homemade incendiary device just outside the nail salon or the magic touch salon. investigators found the fire was contained just to this business. and they were able to find out where it started. but at this point, they still don't know what sparked the blaze. >> when firefighters first arrived, they found the front window of the business broken open with heavy black smoke coming out. fairly localized fires they were able to put out fairly quickly with no obvious signs of how the fire may have started. so a closed business in the middle of the night, considering that, it may be suspicious. >> reporter: the fire inspector
5:02 am
told me they got the call around 11:38 from a fire alarm that tipped them off and no one was injured. it also took them a short amount of time, about 20 minutes to put it out. this is an ongoing investigation. that inspector has been here since midnight when he was first called on to the scene. there are private contractors ready to board up this business. another thing that investigators are working on right now is to contact the owner of this business they said they made several attempts trying to call them and went to an address that was noted as their home but nobody was there. that's the next step in the investigation. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> thank you. police want to know who shot a 1-year-old girl in modesto. she was dropped off at the hospital and told officers she had been hit in a drive-by shooting. she was transported to children's hospital in oakland.
5:03 am
the child is in critical but stable condition. interstate 5 has reopened south of sacramento at the scene of a very deadly crash there. four people were killed when an suv crossed the center median hit a sedan head on. seven other people were sent to the hospital. both cars rolled on impact and passengers ejected. the crash happened around 4:00 yesterday afternoon in the city of elk grove. and there's an arrest for a had the run collision that put a santa rosa pedestrian in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. the witness helped police find the suspect as car with some major damage to its front end and windshield. 30-year-old christian ballesteros from santa rosa is under arrest for felony hit-and- run after the collision yesterday. seven people are recovering after surviving a mishap off the marin county coast. four adults and three children were on a 25-foot boat when it flipped near the mouth of tomales bay yesterday

[ laughter ] >> is that what it is? breakfast. >> he want a bigger present for christmas!

5:06 am

5:07 am
>> well, it's almost over. president obama and mitt romney are making one final push as this is the final day of campaigning before the big election tomorrow. here's susan mcginnis with a look at where the campaign trail leads on this election eve. she joins us live from washington, d.c. i imagine you're ready to have it finished. >> reporter: don't we wish it could all go on forever? the ads and the rallies? alas, this is the last chance they will have to crisscross the swing states trying to get last-minute undecided voters. reporter: president obama did a little dance in cincinnati where stevie wonder introduced him. also at ohio, mitt romney talked about the president's chances of winning. >> it's possible but not likely. >> reporter: the candidates have been burning up jet fuel crisscrossing the country.
5:08 am
on sunday, president obama was in new hampshire, florida, ohio and colorado. >> i know a bunch of you already voted. >> yeah! >> but if you haven't, there's still time. >> reporter: today, he will hit more swing states, wisconsin, iowa and ohio before heading home to chicago for election day. >> after all we've been through together, we can't give up now. >> reporter: mitt romney's battleground bonanza sunday included iowa, ohio, virginia and pennsylvania. >> we're taking back the white house because we're going to win pennsylvania! >> reporter: today he will visit florida, ohio, virginia and new hampshire. >> if you are tired of being tired, not just tonight but all the time... >> reporter: both candidates saw huge crowds at their rallies this weekend. and both realize at this point it's all about getting as many people as possible into the election booth. >> that's what's going to decide this because frankly, there's very few if any undecided voters left. >> reporter: that's a fact even these candidates can agree
5:09 am
with. >> we're no longer relevant now. we're props. ultimately it's up to you. you have the power. >> reporter: a power voters will exercise tomorrow. ... to help out the candidates. the president will be with bruce springsteen and jay-z. romney will be with marshall tucker band and then also kid rock. frank? >> wow. mitt romney and marshall tucker. that will be quite a scene to say the least. well, what is the word on the final pre-election polls? i would imagine it's still very tight, right? >> reporter: it's a dead heat when you talk about the popular vote those national polls. it's really too tight to even see. but if you are looking at the state by state electoral vote race there is a slim chance that the president's coming out ahead there in the states that will most likely decide the election. >> well, and they are going to be working big time today. any indication the aftermath of
5:10 am
sandy will have an effect on people just voting period and on the election itself? >> yeah. it will have an effect on voter turnout. as far as the campaigning, it really gave an advantage to the president because it sort of stopped all the campaigning in its tracks and put the president on the national stage where he was able to be very presidential and show bipartisanship, you saw him there with chris christie. then while fewer people might get to the polls there's no discernible trace of which way those votes might lead so there's not -- there is not expected to be a big outcome impact. >> we'll find out tomorrow and results oners with. thank you, susan mcginnis live in d.c. be sure and stay with cbs 5 and for all your election coverage including live up-to-the-minute election night results from around the nation right here in california of course, the bay area, as well. one week after superstorm sandy slammed the east coast,

5:12 am

5:31 am
good morning. it's monday, november 5. i'm amazing. >> hi, everybody. i'm frank mallicoat. it's 5:31. breaking news in fremont this morning. a man is dead after an officer- involved shooting. major roads are closed while the investigation is under way. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is at central avenue. what happened? >> reporter: i just got more information. behind me you can see this is an active scene along central avenue. two fremont police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave after killing a man who was attacking his wife. officers were called last night at around 11:00 to the 4500 block of central avenue. a woman who called said that her roommate was being attacked by her husband and he had a knife. when police showed up they found that man naked with a knife chasing after his wife. officers ordered him to stop. he would not so they shot him.
5:32 am
the 37-year-old man from san jose has died. one of the officers involved has been with the police department more than 20 years. the other is a three-year veteran. we don't know the motive for the initial attack and we also don't know why that man was naked. the pio told me the two although married were estranged. central avenue is closed from glen more drive to dusterberry way this morning. if you are heading that way avoid the area because at daylight it could be a traffic problem. elissa harrington, cbs 5, fremont. thank you. new this morning a fire gutting a nail salon at a strip mall in pleasant hill. and there are signs it was not an accident. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran is at the scene to tell us why investigators are now calling this suspicious. cate. >> reporter: michelle, it's because of what they found when they first got here on scene and look, i want to show you right now, investigators are still here trying to figure out how it started.
5:33 am
this is what firefighters saw when they first got here, a molotov cocktail or makeshift bomb. the investigator i spoke to says they aren't sure if that's what started this fire but right now he is looking through the rubble for more evidence. that investigator also said they were able to pinpoint where the fire started at this magic touch salon and he was earlier using a hydrocarbon detector to check for any accelerants in that area. again, it is what firefighters found when they first got here that is raising a few eyebrows. >> when firefighters first arrived, they found the front window of the business broken open with heavy black smoke coming out and a fairly localized fire they were able to put out quickly with really no obvious signs of how the fire may have started. so closed business in the middle of the night that in itself, you know, you have to consider that it may be suspicious. >> reporter: the good news here is that the fire was contained to just the magic touch salon
5:34 am
and the firefighters got the alert from an alarm just after 11:30 last night. it only took them about 20 minutes to put it out. no one was around when it started. so thankfully, there were no injuries. now, back out live again, in addition to the fire investigator being here we also see some private contractors also ready to board up this business when it comes time. now, the challenge that they have right now is actually trying to get in touch with the owner. they did put in a few calls to the owner of this salon even went to an address linked to this business but they have not been able to get in touch with the person who owns this business. live in pleasant hill, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> thank you. seven people are safe after their boat capsized off the marin county coast. four adults and three children were on the 25-foot pleasure craft when it overturned yesterday afternoon near the mouth of tomales bay. you can see here rescuers had to cut a hole in the hull to pull out two of the kids who
5:35 am
had been trapped underneath. two others were rescued from the water by helicopter while the other three made it to shore on their own. no one was wearing a life jacket. >> this was a very happy ending today. nobody was injured. certainly nobody was killed. and the children and the parents were reunited and it was a very happy ending. >> it's still unclear what caused the boat to capsize but the coast guard says weather was not a factor. 5:35 now. this morning a one-year-old girl from modesto is in critical condition being treated for gunshot wounds. police in modesto said someone dropped off the girl at a local hospital yesterday and told officers the toddler had been hit with a drive-by shooting. later she was transferred to children's hospital in the bay area in oakland. this morning, that girl is in critical but stable condition. a driver facing felony hit- and-run charges after a pedestrian was run down in santa rosa near the intersection of guerneville road and coffee lane just after
5:36 am
midnight yesterday. a witness helped police find the car that apparently had severe damage nearby. 30-year-old christian ballesteros now under arrest for dui hit-and-run. the pedestrian is being treated for life-threatening injuries. at this time voters on the east coast will be casting their ballots. right now the presidential candidates are spending the final hours before the election in key battleground states. the "associated press" says it appears president obama has an edge toward the 270 electoral votes needed to win. polls suggest that colorado, wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia and florida could go for the president or republican challenger mitt romney for the electoral college votes. both campaigned in some of those states yesterday and will continue today. their focus has less to do with swing voters and more to do with making sure their supporters actually cast their
5:37 am
ballots. >> i know a bunch of you already voted. but if you haven't, there's still time. after all we have been through together, we can't give up now. >> we're taking back the white house because we're going to win pennsylvania! [ applause and cheers ] >> mitt romney will visit florida, virginia and new hampshire today. this is a live look right now at a rally in florida where romney is expected to arrive very soon. the president by the way will hit wisconsin, iowa and ohio before heading home to chicago for election day. you want to stay with cbs 5 and for election coverage. that includes live up-to-the- minute election night results from around the nation, california and, of course, the bay area. 5:37 now. one week after superstorm sandy hit the east coast, it is facing more bad weather now. a nor'easter in the forecast is going to bring nasty weather this week to the east coast. this morning, more new york subways are back in operation as gasoline still is very hard
5:38 am
to find there. power slowly being restored though with 1.4 million outages still reported. over the weekend many people got their first look at their devastated neighborhoods. >> these are marathoners, probably not even staten islanders. look what they are doing. >> people in staten island come out to cheer us on every year so the least we can do is help them out. >> some of the marathoners pitched in instead of running. more than 50,000 people in new jersey have applied for fema assistance and fema has already approved more than $30 million in payments. and we are proud to announce that our parent company, cbs corporation, has contributed a million dollars to the american red cross and in addition cbs corporation will match any contributions that are made by its employees to any sandy related relief effort by making an additional contribution to the american red cross. >> everyone stepping up coming together to help all these victims. >> especially the marathoners. that could have been such an
5:39 am
ugly scene. they canceled it. a lot of runners were there anyway so they helped. >> neat. you know a guy that is looking mighty good today because you delivered the best weekend ever. >> that may be as good as it gets until the remainder of the year. >> beautiful yesterday. >> what's interesting this week, we could see some record- breaking temperatures today and this week maybe snow on our mountaintops so that's going to be something else. what changes we have in store enjoy the beautiful weather today while we have it. it is gorgeous out there toward the afternoon. lots of sunshine expected. waking up to mostly clear skies over the bay although we are seeing some patchy dense fog in some of the north bay valleys. temperatures right now a chilly 48 degrees with fog into santa rosa. san jose clear at 53 degrees, clear skies and 59, fairly mild into san francisco. and 51 in concord. high pressure overhead. we have the offshore winds that's clearing out most of your skies except the north bay valleys and it's also going to bring with it record-breaking heat by the afternoon. these temperatures very impressive. here's a list of the records from before:
5:40 am
this afternoon temperatures 1 to 3 degrees above the record and higher temperatures tomorrow. after that big changes and snow on the way in the mountains. >> look at that. could be some messy morning commutes this week. well, unfortunately, even though it's dry outside we are starting to get some accidents coming in including one along the peninsula. if you are traveling close to candlestick, northbound 101 we are just getting word of an accident involving a pickup truck and a garbage truck. it may still be blocking the right lane. and at last check, chp gave the initial word that garbage trucks may be on fire so that's northbound 101 approaching candlestick. we cannot see any major delays in our live camera in that area but we'll let you know if it starts to back up. another accident westbound 580 approaching the dublin interchange is in the center divide. and let's go out quickly towards fremont. this is some breaking news in the east bay we have been
